A few things have been cropping up so may as well have a spot for them to get listed on.

The spell Spellblades (p. 192) states that Physical blades are like power bolts and are resisted by armor, yet the Power Bolt spell is not resisted by armor, just pure body. Mistake?
If armor can be used them what is the AP of the spell?


Reloading Slide: How many clips does it hold? The Reloading Rail specifically mentions it holds 4 clips, but the Reloading Slide doesn't mention any clip capacity.

Expanded Bows - Traditional: Does overdrawing require the fired arrow to be of a higher rating? if so it makes it useless on Rating 10 bows as there's no rating 11 arrows.

Master Archer: Does the -2 Movement Penalty reduction count towards firing from a moving vehicle as well as running?

the "Biospike" entry has its components listed as "Bone Spurs."

Then Hand Load manufactured armor is listed in the body of the work to be normal ammunition cost +10% while the table lists it as +25%

For myself, it is more a case of  fluff to crunch questions needing clarifying.

Depleted Uranium Rounds in the fluff mention that if all the shattered bits of the round arenít removed from a surviving target,
the target will develop cancer in a matter of weeks.
Are we to just use the Radiation elemental effects from Street Grimoire and if so, what are the values used for determining ongoing effects?
Or is there some other table to consult?

Also for the spellblade errate, what does the spellcasting test for?

Edit: also what is used for ACC? Force?

Does Elemental Focus (p.191) effect drain in some way or not?

Voice Warper (p. 187-188) doesn't have possible ratings listed in either the description or price table and no test is listed to fool listeners. I assume it's Impersonation + Charisma + Device Rating, or would it be, given that it's designed to warp your voice rather than impersonate which is what the voice modulator would be for?

 Voice Recognition is Equipment DP vs. Device Rating as per CRB, I believe?

Does Elemental Focus (p.191) effect drain in some way or not?
I believe all it does is change the drain to be the element of the spell e.g. Ice Spear would become Cold-element drain. No idea what it'd do to fire, acid, or water spells.

Yeah.  I'm sure every fire magician is looking forwards to lighting themselves on fire every time they cast Fireball.  Totally worth it for the +2 dice.  Or the -5 Initiative every time you use Ball Lightning...  Oh, so much fun.

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

At least if it's fully resisted, nothing happens.

It would explain why the toxic and radiation mages are so sickly looking, it's not just where they hang out but their own drain having residual effects. :P

Cloaks don't have a base level cost. Also, as Capacity is governed by Armor Rating, does this mean that a cloak can accept standard modifications if suitably armoured?

Kind of nitpicky, but I don't see why the Longbarrel modification should be using the Barrel modification slot; it's very possible to add a sound suppressor to a weapon with a lengthened barrel (and slide), and given this, I feel like the Longbarrel use of the barrel modification slot doesn't really jive with how having an internal piece of a firearm replaced functions in conjunction with modifications, since the barrel can still be threaded to accept a sound suppressor.

That's hidden in the blurb:
100 NY per rating for the basic with corresponding number of slots (up to 6)
300 NY per rating for the stylish version

Ehhh. The way I read it the 100• was for the armor modification, with an additional 300• for the latest fashion. If it's intended that a cloak costs a hundred with a minimum of 1 point of armour then yeah, sweet. Easy done. As is it's a little ambiguous.

P. 25 fluff section - It states the great dragon Lung has strong ties to MCT.
It isn't Lung, MCT (& yakuza for that matter) has always been Ryumyu

Adding to this:

Why is electronic firing a barrel-modification?
By RAW, you can't use it together with Gas-Vents or silencers anymore, which honestly doesn't make much sense (and is already broken with the Yamaha Raiden which features both items on the same weapon).

IMHO this should be a normal internal modification that doesn't use up any of the external mod-slots.

The Spellblades spell (p. 192) does not have a classification attached to it. All others spells have (manipulation) written behind the name.
Other subfixes are not present either for all spells
